When I traveled to Vancouver a few weeks ago for vacation, stopping by Murchie’s was on the top of my to-do list. I had discovered it online and had heard great things, but had never been to the store and had never tried any of their teas myself. I visited the shop on Hastings, and it was adorable. The lady behind the counter was extremely helpful and patient as I asked to sniff nearly all of the teas that they had in the store (I know, I’m ridiculous).
This blend was one of two that were available to sample in the store that day, and I fell in love on first taste! When jasmine is combined with black tea, I feel like the tea usually overpowers the taste of the jasmine. Jasmine is almost always awesome when combined with green tea, but sometimes I want that jasmine flavor while drinking something a little stronger. This tea seems to be a great solution. It’s also the first black-green blend I’ve ever tasted, and I will definitely be drinking more after this. I ended up purchasing 2oz of this (along with 2 oz each of 5 other teas), and I plan on replacing it when my stash runs out.
